Infected blood: reform of financial and other support

Closed 15 Apr 2016

Opened 21 Jan 2016

Overview

This consultation seeks views on the proposed reforms to the infected blood payment schemes.

Since 1988, government has voluntarily provided support for people affected by HIV and/or hepatitis C through treatment with NHS-supplied blood or blood products.  

The Department of Health is aware that over time concerns have been expressed about the various schemes, and is therefore setting out proposals on how these might be reformed.
